For a story that centers around a woman’s unwitting love for her future son, Back to the Future manages to be admirably non-creepy. Sure, there’s a WTF factor that kicks in the second we realize Lorraine has the hots for Marty, but Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale manage to keep things on the right side of the funny / awful divide.
But getting that balance right apparently took some trial and error. A cut scene reveals one hilarious instance in which they found themselves on the wrong side of that calculation. Watch the bizarre Back to the Future deleted scene after the jump.

We’re currently in the third month of 2015. That puts us three months after all those bad Back to the Future Part II jokes and seven months away from the actual date Marty and Doc arrive in the futuristic year. It’s also only four months from the actual 30-year anniversary of the release of the original Back to the Future, which makes it a great time to remind everyone how amazing that trilogy of films is with a full fledged, Back to the Future art show. It will open March 6 at Meltdown Comics on Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles and features 88 artists paying homage to the fantastic series.
Below, see a dozen images from the show and find out all the pertinent information. Read More »

Is there anything Legos can’t make better? If this Lego Back to the Future short is any indication, apparently not. Even one of the most iconic scenes from one of the most beloved movies of all time looks ever-so-slightly more charming when rendered in stop-motion with little plastic bricks.

The Oscars inevitably bring a lot of grumbling about which films the Academy has overlooked. But if one of your favorites is among them, perhaps you can at least take heart in the fact that it’s in great company. The Oscars have a very long history of backing the wrong horse. Some of what we now view as unimpeachable classics weren’t even seen as Best Picture nomination-worthy at the time.
Hit the jump for a list of films never nominated for Best Picture.

While we wait for the hoverboards and self-tying Nikes we were promised, here’s another way to make your 2015 feel a bit more like Marty McFly’s 2015. Japanese toy company Bandai has announced a Back to the Future DeLorean iPhone case.
By that, we don’t mean they’ve just taken a plain old iPhone case and painted on some fancy pictures. No, this is a detailed miniature model with working lights and everything. You’ll have to supply your own flux capacitor if you actually want to send it through time, though.
Watch a video of the Back to the Future DeLorean iPhone case in action after the jump. Read More »

Outdoor movie screenings are so much fun. They’re not usually the ideal place to first see a movie, of course, but as a communal experience, where everyone knows the movie, it’s the best. Secret Cinema, however, is so much more than an outdoor screening series. It’s an outdoor screening coupled with a live performance and theme park experience where you not only watch the movie, you can live it.
Don’t know what we mean? A new video showing this past summer’s Back to the Future Secret Cinema event puts it into perspective. The organization not only rebuilt the town of Hill Valley; they have actors walking around, a beautiful big screening, and people performing the movie, under the movie, while you watch the movie. Check out a video of the greatest Back to the Future screening of all time below. Read More »
We’ve covered a ton of Back to the Future illustrated poster prints over the years, but this one is definitely one of my favorites.

The 18? x 24? sized print will be released at Thought Bubble in the UK in an edition of only 225. Hit the jump to see the full Back to the Future Matt Taylor poster now.

There are few things cooler than people turning Back to the Future in reality. Be it a Hoverboard, pair of Nikes or Lego creation, fans of the trilogy love to get inspired to own a piece of the film.
In 2011, a video hit YouTube of a fan who had created an actual flying DeLorean from Back to the Future. Now, it’s on a much smaller scale, and they’re using four fans, but it’s a pretty excellent creation anyway. Check out the video below. Read More »
